The change really is quite important. We have previously only been
testing S4 in single mode in the build farm, which doesn't represent
how real users run it. A bug was introduced in tevent a while ago
which broke standard mode, and we didn't even notice.

If this has made some tests less stable then we need to fix those
tests. Perhaps the timing is less predictable in standard mode.

It has needed well over an hour for a while now. The big jump was the
change to run all the s3 tests in the top level build.
